tgboy, start with Cyrul's setup on his site CEFX (http://www.cefx.net/), as for gearing, ask one of the fast guys what their rollout is and go from there converting to the X-Ray, thats the best way to get close....

yeah-Josh's set-up for his split cell chassis works AWESOME on a saddle pack configured car-like the stock chassis or the BMI 350 chassis.

I ran that set-up w/ very few chnages and it was pretty awesome. Great corner speed and lots of steering, but not hard to drive.

Well, my Xray has eventually turned its wheels
I wanted to test at the weekend, but my club had a race on and I didn't want to enter the race without having tested the car.
I setup the car pretty much as standard, except I used Assos 50WT oil all round + Assos copper and gold springs front and rear. My track is very tight and technical, so I needed the quick reacting suspension.
I used a 17T motor with 93/21 gear ratio - I tried the 93/22, but I was a little slower.
All the results from the weekends race were available at the track, so I could see what sort of lap times I had to put in to be in the thick of it. To my amazement by the third battery, where I put on my Sorex 24R tyres, I was faster than any of the drivers during the A-Main and by the 4th battery, where I increased the rear-droop from 5mm to 6mm to settle down the rear end off throttle, I set a time which was only bettered once by one driver during the whole weekend...Wow!!! this car is really good!!! I hadn't even started to really look into the setup fully - all I had changed was the rear droop!!!

There's a little bit of understeer on throttle in the flat out sweeper, but apart from the the handling is almost perfect already.

Cheers, Mark.

Sure does. My car was ballistic this weekend, looked like it was on rails. Just can't wait for my BMI split chassis to get here to try it.

I might be wrong'

Jon
Bearing looks to be the same size. Don't know why they would want to change that since that is what make the Xray's drive train so smooth.
